Preferred Solution: I have Random BSD and Patchy Video Display?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: I have Random BSD and Patchy Video Display?

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum):
Should you have problems with the perfmon report, please disregard it (I don't use it very much anyway).
Should the app lock up for more than 15 minutes while searching for Network information (it does this in my copy of W10), go ahead and kill the app. 
Then navigate to the Documents folder and zip up the 18 reports in the SysnativeFileCollectionApp folder - then upload that with your next post.
If that doesn't work, then you can try this new app (from a friend of mine):
When done a Notepad document will open with the name of the file and it's location.
By default it'll be a .zip file located on your Desktop
Simply upload the .zip file with your next post and we'll move on from there.

System Specs:

HP/Compaq 8710p laptop
Windows XP SP3
Kaspersky Internet Security

Symptoms over past few months:

After using computer for many hours (8+) performance drastically degrades and the screen display eventually becomes patchy with text and graphics missing. At this point the computer is no longer functional and must be Shut Down. Sometimes a forced power off is required as it won't shut down normally.

After re-boot the computer is back to normal but the problem is consistent.

I occassionally get the "Blue Screen of Death" with reference to "nv4_disp.dll". This has happened approximately once every 3 months over the past year. Eventually I re-installed the Display driver but this hasn't changed the situation.

I have run Malwarebyte's Anti-malware and Kaspersky Anti-virus scans regularly.

Any ideas you have to help resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!


A:Performance degradation & video display becomes patchy

Have you noticed the machine getting hot when the graphics errors occur? Download Speedfan (free app) and monitor your CPU and more importantly your GPU temperatures. Check your temps with the operating temps on the chip manufacturers site. If yours are getting too hot it would explain the slow performance and graphics errors.

To resolve first check your fan is running properly and the fan and heatsink are clean from dust/hair. Also consider cleaning off the old thermal paste and applying a high quality paste to the chips.

Greetings Pal,

So first of all, I want to say kudos to you for the very detailed description of your problem. I will try my best to help you determine the cause of this issue as I will attempt to cross out some possible causes. This is not a solution to your problem however.

If I had to take an educated guess, Id have to say your drivers are the problem. Safe mode loads using the least amount of Drivers, therefore you will have to address this issue by going into "Device Manager" (Type it into the Start Menu) Look for any xs next to your driver and update. (This will not work unless ur select "Safe Mode with Networking."

My first possible attempt would be to get into safe mode again, control panel, and remove the two 30 day trail programs you downloaded. This should free up some space so that you can move around a little faster to determine the issue.

If this isnt the issue, your VGI cable could be the cause. In this case you'd have to buy a new cable but this is a last resort.

I hope I was able to guide you a Little towards finding your solution, Have a good day and keep me updated.

I'm sure a lot of people have this problem, and it's seriously killing me.

I don't normally notice it, but any time a game is loading or a song or video is just stops. I know this is likely due to a short screwup in my connection.

What I don't know is why my internet bounces offline, then back on or how to fix it. I'm hoping I just need to put filters on all my phone jacks, which will be done shortly.

Please help, as I have run out of reliable sources.

I also have a wireless router, if that makes a difference.

If you are using DSL and don't have filters on ALL the phone equipment EXCEPT the DSL modem, that's an obvious first step!

A:Win 7, can't communicate with DNS server - patchy issue

we will go over old ground i'm afraid here

1) you have zonealarm, as a virus product do you also have the firewall - make sure you remove all firewalls an use the removal tools - give us a list of what has ever been on the pc and we can give the tools address

2) have you gone to the manufactures website and updated the driver or actually re-installed the driver

3) quite a few things to try below
a) tcp/ip reset
b) ping tests - please do all three - would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.
c) Change DNS servers and see if that resolves the issue
d) Uninstall the driver and re-install
e) Post an xirrus screen shot
f) Have you looked into channel interference - the xirrus screen shot will help with that

I have a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 7000 that I am using. Sometimes the cursor just sticks and won't move properly and I can't figure out why. I am trying to use it about 10-12 feet from the tower where the receiver is plugged in. When I use the mouse about 2 feet from the receiver it works fine. I thought this mouse was suppose to cover a 30 foot distance. I also have the router right next to the mouse's wireless receiver and not sure if the 2.4 GHZ Frequency interferes. I have tried new batteries and downloading updated drivers, but had no luck. Any ideas would be appreciated.

A:Microsoft Wireless Mouse with patchy performance!

You have pretty much determined its a distance issue. Distance can vary by the quality of the hardware and any interference within the room. Not too mention it's a notebook mouse, so the primary concern wasn't in achieving great distance.

Is the receiver out in the open?

I know on my computer case, the case extends out beyond the rear USB ports for the receiver and the mouse hardly worked 2 ft away. It worked fine when attached to the front panel of the case, but that wasn't conveinent so I used a USB extension cable to move the receiver under my desk over by the mouse.

It was working fine, a circuit tripped and the computer of course lost all power, I booted back up and got this error message when trying to watch live TV:

Recorded TV plays fine, but live TV gives that error. It says to restart Media Center or restart the computer; I've tried both and neither resolved the error. ANY help ASAP would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a ton!

UPDATE: I tried moving the tuner to another slot and still no success. Uninstall drivers and reinstalled, still nothing. This stinks. :'(

Okay, here's what I want to do. I want to send video output to a Plasma in my family room and also have output to the computer monitor in the adjacent office. I have the option of using either VGA or DVI to either monitor, so I can use a video card that has dual VGA/DVI outputs. Or, I can buy a separate PCI video card. Right now I have an ATI All-in-Wonder 7500.

Am I better off to get a new video card with dual monitor output or have two separate video cards. If the former, what video cards do you recommend? I know I've seen recommendations for the 9600 Pro, which seems to have dropped significantly in price? I'd like to stay with ATI as I've always used that.

Software: MS-XP SP2 Media Player(s): MS-Media Player
Power DVD Player

Media Used: DVD disk and video movie download (

Issue: Video Display has slow update and loses frames on both DVDs and Video Movie downloaded files.

[1] The computer has always had this problem; this is not a new issue.

[2] I have tried adjusting the Display settings provide by XP with no measurable improvement.

[3] Sound is not affected and has good quality.

[4] When MS-Media Player is used and is minimized to the task bar (mini screen presentation) the Video Display quality improves, but is not acceptable.

[5] Only about half of Video Movie can be viewed. Image freezes and play button is enabled. When play is clicked, the Video Movie restarts from the beginning.

Does anyone have a suggestion, I am out of ideas.

A:Video Display has slow update and loses frames on both DVDs and Video Movie downloade

Wow, it just might be the ancient processor you have and the very small amount of Ram you have. Video really eats up resources and I think you dont have the power to run it without problems, The key here is that when you minimize your preview window in Media Player, you have less problems.

So basically i did bunch of dual display setups before but using two video cards or using one video card with two outputs but this is the FIRST TIME im trying with a built in intergrated card and a PCI card.

Heres the issue.

I hooked up the PCI video card and when i plugg both monitors in, the intergrated video card gives a yellow exclamation point in the device manager and nothing shows up on the monitor. Only the PCI video card shows signal..

I tried un-installing both cards, redoing it from ground up, tried disabling and renabling both cards but only one monitor shows up and that is the PCI card.
What do you guys think?



Check that the on-board video is enabled in the Bios.

It's possible you can't have both working at the same time, should be able to check this if you know what motherboard it is.

Two of the three dumps blame your nVidia driver (the other dump is inconclusive), the first think to try would be going to NVidia's site and getting some different drivers and take it from there.

I have been trying to resolve this problem for over a week now... My issue is that whenever I am working in video editing programs such as Windows Movie Maker or Edius Neo I am unable to see my video playback in the display window. I can hear the audio but my playback window is either white or see through and I can see my desktop behind the playback window. (See attached screen shots )

The solutions I have tried so far are- reinstalling a new graphics driver, changing the graphics properties and so far there has been no improvement.

I know there is no problem with the actual video files as they play back perfectly in Windows media player or with VLC player.

Please help!! I am desperate for a solution.

A:Video display: sound no video

Hello Frannygstar

I think you might be missing some codecs especially if the files play properly in VLC player.

I got a minor problem with my system. I highly doubt it is from the 9600GT card my friend give me. The symptom is: at random startup the screen will display artifacts, to be exact it actually looks like there are tiny glitters all over the screen randomly. and the display will shutoff intermittently.

always solved by a reboot. always. sometimes what i notice is, the fan is not as noisy as usual when startup, and the problem appear.

not a big deal, but getting quite irritating having to reboot to solve the problem. i've tried cleaning the card contact also of course clean the HSF and redo thermal gel.

anyone have any idea? and of course, drivers are 258.xx from nvidia web.

Core E6300 1.86, 3GB DDR2, 1000GB HDD, MSI 9600GT OC 512, LG L196WTQ 1440x900, AcBel 400W PSU.

P.S. never had any similar experience with my old 9500GT card.

For the past 2 months my computer will randomly lose its display, and then restart. when it restarts, there is no display on my monitor. Ive tried switching hdmi cables, using different monitors, and the problem still persists. Sometimes when I click on firefox or explorer, my screen will go black for a few seconds, then comes back.

When it restarts, my computer looses all display. I have to constantly turn it off by holding the power button, then turn it back on about 5 or 6 times until it gets back up again.

I have a feeling that it is my gpu, but I don't know if it is a hardware or driver problem.

Attached is my dmp. file

Any help is much appreciated. Thank you

Based on 1 single dump you have attached and based on what you say... its a Bugcheck 116 (Video TDR failure) ... pointing towards the Nvidia drivers.

Before we try the solution please do the below

You need to figure out what is triggering the event. Look in Task Scheduler and see what is shown there.
Click Start, type sched and select Task Scheduler to get there.

Some good info here, may or may not apply though: [SOLVED] Event ID: 98. Volume needs to be taken offline to perform a full chkdsk. - Windows Server - Spiceworks

I have a Elitebook HP 8530p, and it has a issue with the screen brightness. When put 100% (energy properties are at : high profile) the screen dims, but the % remains 100, however when manually setting to a lower then to max again the screen is bright (as it should be)

This happens while i'm activly using the computer. (mouse/keyboard interaction)
I disabled every possible auto-dim feature I found. This happens at random moments but every 1-5 min it happens.

This renders the laptop useless, so any help is very welcome.

any help appreciated !

Sometimes I come back to my PC after a while, turn on my monitor and my screen is black even though my monitor is getting the power. I press everything, move my mouse nothing happens. My computer is powered on and it not in sleep state.

I made sure I have the high performance setting in the power options and even double checked to turn off options like 'turn off display' and 'sleep'.

Not sure why it happens and happens so randomly. I have searched similar threads here, but couldn't find a proper solution to this. The only thing i can do is a hard reset.

I tried putting win 8.1 on it that went nowhere fast as the ATI drivers crash out crash out win 8.1 , anyway with the default Intel drivers, never saw any glitches, after reformatting it and putting win7 on it and having all the drivers installed I get odd display glitches on the desktop.

The glitches are lines, bars or blocks of grabbled graphics like it took a picture of that area then garbled it up, and sometimes they are static snow.

I ran 3Dmark 06 in various loops from 30 minutes to a couple hours on a cooling pad and it never glitches out but I go to surf or arrange files and dose it every now and then, is this an issue with the LCD screen or what??

The OS is Windows Home Premium 64-bit. The OS install is about 6 months old. BSOD started happening randomly about two weeks ago. It seems to happen at no consistent time. Sometimes the video card is not being used heavily, other times it is. The action center reports video hardware errors occurring at the same time as the BSOD, so I'm fairly sure they are related. The diagnostics are attached in accordance with the instructions. If anyone could take a look, I would really appreciate it.


A:Random BSOD, Probably Display Driver Related

You have D-Link DWA-160 Xtreme N Dual Band USB Adapter(rev.A2) - Win7 does not like these devices and, if using older (Vista-era) drivers, will spit out BSOD's rapidly! Here's my rant on these devices:

I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Win7 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

Wired networking is disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions).
Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

McAfee's present in the dumps - it doesn't mean anything, it's just a "hunch" on my part. Please try this to rule it out:

Anti-Virus Removal:
Please do the following:
- download a free antivirus for testing purposes: Free AntiVirus
- uninstall the McAfee from your system (you can reinstall it, if so desired, when we're done troubleshooting)
- remove any remnants of McAfee using this free tool: How to uninstall or reinstall supported McAfee products using the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe) (This link has changed a lot. If it doesn't work, search for McAfee Consumer Products Removal Tool)
- IMMEDIATELY install and update the free antivirus, then check to ensure that the Windows Firewall is turned on.
- check to see if this fixes the BSOD's
NOTE: NEVER run more than 1 anti-virus, firewall, Internet Security/Security Center application at the same time.

2 different BSOD's - so it's uncertain what's causing this.
For the most recent (STOP 0x116) - try this troubleshooting topic: STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting
For the other BSOD (STOP 0xA) - please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

Finally, there are lots of older (2009 and earlier)_drivers present in the memory dump. Please update them from the manufacturer's website. There's a list of drivers with dates below this - use that list, along with the links below the list, to find and update the drivers. Post back with questions for any problems that you may have.

If the above steps don't stop the BSOD's, please zip up and upload any new memory dumps with your next post - and we'll see what we can figure out from there.

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs

Hi, I am getting random lines or colors when I go to desktop or hit refresh. It appears randomly. While playing games, running other applications, it doesn't seem to appear, but still, it appears randomly. Here is an image of a same web page, opened in two different tabs. You can see that in the rightmost part of the screen(where we have the option to scroll the web page) there are two tiny lines of red color. Its there in one tab, but not in any of the other tabs in the browser. Here are those two tabs.

There is also a small white-squared box near the right side, but that one is my mouse cursor.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Yes. I am a beginner, and so I was hoping if someone knew how to display 10 random real numbers between 0 and 10 in Java. The problem I am having is displaying 10 different numbers generated from one Math.random statement. This is what I have so far:

public class RandomNumber {

public static void main ( String[] args ) {

double number;

number = Math.random() * 11;

System.out.println ("Here are ten random real numbers between 0 and 10:");

System.out.println (number);

Hi, thanks to all that helped me before
I'm running a system with a P4 3.06 Mhz, MSI MS-6728 Intel Motherboard and NVDIA 3D Power Graphics card with 1GB DDR RAM

when i turn on my PC on the monitor it displays No Video Output
I cannot see how far the PC loads as nothing displays, but the HDD makes a sound so is loading something
On my other PC the monitor works fine! (It has built in graphics)

Any ideas guys?

I have an E-machine T2341 which was working fine. One morning it wouldn't turn on, totally dead. I've replaced the power supply, it sounds like it's powering up now but nothing shows on the screen. I've tested the screen with another computer and it displays fine. Any suggestions as to why after replacing the power supply it does not show anything?

A:Now no video display

If it was the power supply they like to take other parts with them to the great hearafter. It could be that it took the motherboard with it. If it is the motherboard a new case and motherboard would be in order.

My question is, is there a way of making both displays, my tv and monitor play video?

I am trying to fix an older Dell Dimension for a friend of mine. It's a Pentium III with 512 mb memory. Everything seems to start up Ok but I cannot get anything to display on the monitor. I know it's not the monitor and I have tried 2 different video cards in 2 different slots so I dont believe it's the video card either. I am at a loss for what to try next.

Hiya and welcome

Which version of DirectX do you have:

Go to Run and type DXDIAG
In the first tab will be the evrsion.

Also, lets try a 'spring clean'

Go to Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, delete offline content. Also, clear the History.

Content tab, under AutoComplete, clear Forms and Passwords.

Advanced tab, under Browsing, look for Enable Insta on Demand. Untick.
Under Security, look for Empty Tempory Internet... Tick.
Apply and OK

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Download Spybot - Search & Destroy from

After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds.

That ought to get rid of most of your spyware.

When you've done all that, go to , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Reboot in between running spybot & Hijackthis

The video display has deteriorated, where text and graphics appear with "skid" marks (see attached).

Computer is Vista Home Premium SP2 with NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT using current driver v270.61

Any suggestions to correct this?

A:Video Display

Hi HarvMan,

It could be a clear type issue. (note, this is how to do it in Win 7, so might be slightly different in Vista)

Control Panel>Display>Adjust Clear Type Text. Turn Clear Type on/ off and see if that helps.

Here's the ClearType Tuner via Microsoft that may also help?

I am having some difficulties. We have a computer set up with a AGP video out with RGA and RCA video out. I changed the main monitor to the RCA video out by mistake and powered off the machine. In the meantime, the power supply died, and I've gotten a new one. Now when I power it on, I dont get any video out of any port. I have tested every video output port multiple times. Not the the BIOS will display. Once in awhile I get a long tone that may go for about 10 seconds. I have tried removing CMOS battery, and also using the CMOS reset pins on the motherboard.

What else can I try?

The board model is gigabyte ga85661fxm-775

Hello, I'm a pc tech in Florida. I've run into a problem I can make no sense of. Video

files of the "mpeg, avi, wmv" formats will not display in color, only grayscale. This is

true no matter what player I use (Winamp, Windows MP, GOM, etc); also whether I'm

playing from the hard drive or CD/DVD drive. Flash [flv, swf] files play in perfect

color. All photo files and web pages have perfect color too, leading me to believe it's

a Windows-based problem, since the graphics adapter is performing without a hitch. I am

stumped! Any ideas? Thanks.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Please would you fill in your system specs in at the top of the page(click on edit profile).

Try clearing you cmos your mobo book will tell you how to do this.

Or you could take out the cmos battery being careful only to hold it by it`s edges not top and bottom.

Leave it out for a minute or so then reinsert it and reboot.

I can't get any video display on my Dell computer. I tried two good monitors so it's not a monitor problem. All connections are tight. When I turn on the computer the green light on the monitor comes on and then the light becomes orange and blinks continuously. I tried another good video card but got the same results. The computer is a Dell Dimension XPS T600r. What could be the problem?

A:no video display

Is this an onboard video adaptor, check your motherboard documentations see if your jumpers are set correctly and make sure you have you have your drivers installed correctly.

I had to format my hard drive due to a virus. I have had no problems until I try to watch video clips online, I am having trouble with the colors. If I watch a news clip it is perfect but if I try to watch certain other clips I only get bright yellow and purple colors and it is impossible to see the video. I have remove the video adapter and reinstalled it several times. I have also changed the video display but nothing seems to work. I only have 16 and 32 bit to choose from. If anyone has any suggestions I would gladly like to hear from you.ThanksMod Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Did you reinstall the drivers for your video adapter as well? You do not specifically mention it, is the reason I ask.

Okay, its me again, but I just started a new topic.

Okay, I got my new motherboard and ram. I install them both and hooked up the hard drive and the floppy. Booted up and I can hear the hard drive spinning and the floppy light comes on, (but no hearing anything)

I'm not getting any video. I tried 2 different video cards and I still get nothing. 1 AGP and 1 PCI card.

I tried placing the ram in different slots but nothing. Help?

A:No video display?

Disconnect everything except the video card. Remove all peripherals--modem, sound card, etc. Disconnect the hard disk, floppy, CD-ROM drive and try again. If that doesn't give you a screen, check main board jumper settings. Be sure the CMOS Clear jumper is not set to Clear.

If it is an Amptron or PCChips board, many of them com set to CMOS Clear and, of course, will not post in that position.

I had no display issues with Win7 Pro 32-bit, but having migrated to Win 10, the display will randomly go black, sometimes with the mouse cursor visible. There is disk activity but no key combination seems to get the display on again so I end up rebooting via the power button to shut down and cold start.

BIOS is latest, as are display drivers. I have tried rolling back the drivers and even using generic VGA drivers to no avail. Also removed and rediscovered the display card in Device Manager. Lenovo don't have anything useful.

I have seen a few similar posts on other sites but no answers. Anyone have an idea?

A:Strange random errors (display corruption, freezes)

What kind of display cards have you been using?

And can you post a screenshot of the problem?

Do they occur on bootup, in Safe Mode, or only under special circumstances, such as gaming and high cpu usage?

High temps or an inadequate power supply could certainly be a cause.

I'm going to move this to the hardware forum as it seems unlikely it is an "XP" issue.

I did a clean install of Windows XP Pro on a Dell Optiplex. My 5th clean install this summer. Everything worked great. All the updates ran, drivers added back, etc. Took the tower to hook it up to its new home with a different monitor and everything looks good at the beginning, Bios doing its thing, Windows XP Logo begins its load and then the screen goes black and I get a one line message across the screen "Cannot display this video mode". Freezes on that and I have to power down. Both monitors are Dell Flatscreens, although slightly different in model. Hooked it back up to the other one and it works like a charm. No big deal, I will just switch out the monitors, but can anyone tell me how to avoid that in the future or how to fix it?

A:cannot display this video mode

Sounds like the monitor does not like the video resolution and/or refresh reate you have selected to run Windows on that computer. Try booting in safe mode (tap the F8 function key right after power up and you should get a Windows boot selection screen).
You should get a stable 640x480 display and then be able to experiment with different display properties to find one compatible with your monitor. Unless you messed with some advanced settings, Windows will try the new resolution and display a message for about 15 seconds asking if you want to keep the new resolution. If you do nothing, it reverts to the previous settings.

Once in a while the display corrupts, showing patterns that look like large pixels. Sometimes it appears as a series of vertical lines, each 1/2 to 1" in width.

Rebooting won't fix it, I need to power off the computer and power on to recover.

Recurring problem: I am running several tabs on Windows Vista, doing research on various companies for business purposes, no wacky or suspicious websites.

Is my video card and monitor not compatible with 8.1? I know it's too old for some functions such as snap display but seems strange that it wouldn't be able to run, seen as though Windows 8 ran fine.

Any ideas?

Are you getting this error message as soon as you boot your computer? Or are you getting it when Windows is preparing to go to the "log in" screen?

If you are getting this error upon boot-up, the problem is not in Windows, it is either the card, the monitor's settings or in the BIOS. If you are only getting this when the PC prepares to log into Windows, it's most likely driver/configuration related.

I'm in the process of setting up a new system, right now im just trying to get it running.

new asus mobo
new amd chip
new Gskill ram
new gigabyte nvidia 9600 card (pcie 2.0 x16)
new 450w psu

Its on my old hard drives right now

but I am not getting any usable display, it just shows some random moving colors and shapes. everything else looks like it is working properly.

hey guys amp gals have a little problem thats driving me crazy my hard drive went down blue screen luckily had a extra laying around so i started over on the new drive installed windows pro updated to service pack and all the updates available video display comes up not being recognized have a radeon ve mb ddr AGP installed display problems video but not detected and is not on the list microsoft has for available hardware went to ati to get driver downloaded the hydravision and the latest catalyst restarted and after splash screen i get a black screen with different color dots like it is trying to load a picture but doesnt and locks up went through video display problems safe mode noticed that the card is now detected as a radeon series and there is a driver available installed driver and removed video display problems the catalyst but still running at X and colors tried downloading driver from different sites but same black screen appears during restart please help me thanks nbsp

A:video display problems

First, ignore the drivers provided by Windows Update. They should not be used. Use the ATI Catalyst driver as it offers 100% more features and performance.

Before installing the latest catalyste driver make sure you have installed the latest chipset drivers from the motherboard. You can download these from the manufacturer of the chipset, ie. Intel, VIA, SIS, Nvidia, etc.

I have suggested that we continue on the original topic - removing the SOLVED indicator from it.
It seems to me to the easier course of action.
All the information is then so readily available on there.

2 days ago i took out my Nvidia geforce 4 ti4200 and put in a Sapphire radeon 9600xt, and it was working great. Today when i was playing battlefield2 my comp just restarted in the middle of the game, then it returned to windows it restarted again and now my monitor was saying " No video input signal". I took out my new vid card and put my old one back in and still says the message, so i tried a different monitor and still same message. I know it isnt the card that is causing the problem because i tested it in another computer and it works fine. I dont think it is the power supply either because the comp turns on i kno it boots up and all but no display. Is it posible that my AGP slot is burned or MOBO is screwed.
Please help

I have a Packard Bell AMD K6-II system, and the hard drive died. Instead of Win98, I installed NT (with all the upgrades and fixes). Under Win98, the monitor displayed 1024 x 768 pixels. but under NT, the Display applet in the Control Panel only goes up to 800 x 600. Is there a way to 'fix' the Display applet, or alternatively, a way to change the display resolution through DOS? HELP!! I REALLY NEED 1024 x 768, as I am not a casual user.

You will have to install a driver for your video card. If you have not updated the card, go to the mfg web site and download the driver for NT. After it is installed you should be able to set the resolution to what you want.

Why does my computer video display suddenly go GREEN when using Windows Media Player and I am watching a Streaming Video News feed. I have the latest drivers for the video card and the latest version of video media player but from time to time when watching Broad Band Video the display goes GREEN ie you can see the figures but the only available colour is green. This is very annoying and I would like to fix it.

A:Video Display goes Green

Probably because you dont have the right codecs (coder/decoder). i use this one: here although u can install others if need be. this pack should give u everything u need.

A:How to dual video display?

The onboard graphics will disabled when a graphics card is installed.
You need a graphics card that has dual ports, either two vga,two dvi or one of each
Make sure the old graphic drivers are deleted FIRST before installing the new card

I remotely logon to a computer running XP. When I try to view a video it displays very choppy, any suggestion on correcting the display ???


A:Video Display Choppy

Remotely? As in remote desktop? No, response time is slow. It's largely dependent on internet connection speed, but even with a fast connection, there is lag even when trying to perform normal functions.

Hey, I have a problem with my video display. My screen fuzzes up randomly as in the pixels kind of shift around. If you look at eh attached photo and look in the corner, you will see the slight white parts on the black. This happens even when I'm running a game.
Say the game's main background colour is red and the secondary colour is green. Sometimes the green will shift onto the red or the opposite. Also, sometimes instead of colour switching. White and black patches appear, giving the effect of a fuzzy screen. Please help me solve this problem.

I recently did some major system maintenance on this machine as I hadn't done so in some time Ended up clearing out a lot display Video problems? of unnecessary Registry values did some cleaning of various spyware did some disk cleanups and freed up space in general among other things Problem is now for the most part I'm unable to see video most of the time I say most of the time because curiously if I load up a playlist of videos and cycle through them a Video display problems? couple of them will often Video display problems? start working after a few cycles through the playlist but will often go black again after I cycle through the playlist again I assumed the issue came from FFDshow so I reinstalled it to no avail Even tried a few different versions dating back to I've uninstalled and reinstalled all the standard codecs like DivX and XVid but still cannot get my videos to work with any consistency Anyone got some suggestions I think a key file or two might have been subject to corruption due to the spyware and virus cleanouts of which I emptied the quarantines I downloaded the latest K-lite mega pack even which detected some corrupted codecs and replaced them but my situation hasn't improved Videos seem to work only about of the time and do not display the vast majority of the times Audio works perfectly fine however Edit Relevent I figure is the fact that VLC media player does not work either It's not just WMP

Hmm... I disabled overlays in WMP11 and it seems to work fine now... Odd. I wonder what was up, as I never changed any settings in WMP11 that would otherwise enable overlay or whatever.
